ED STAFFORD RETURNS TO DISCOVERY IN ALL-NEW EPIC SERIES, MAROONED
PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23 AT 10PM ET/PT
On the back of his incredible 860 day feat crossing the jungle for WALKING THE AMAZON, and 60 days spent alone with just a camera on a desert island for NAKED CASTAWAY – Ed Stafford truly is one man marooned in an all-new, five part series. MAROONED, premiering on Discovery Wednesday, April 23 at 10PM ET/PT sees Ed strive to prove to himself that he can tackle the challenges of any environment, once again with nothing except his camera – and find everything he needs to not just survive, but thrive in some of the world’s toughest environments.
Shot in the mysterious Gran Sabana mountains of Venezuela, the dangerous Okavango Delta in Botswana, the harsh Carpathian Mountains in Romania, the unforgiving coast of Western Australia and the humid jungles of Borneo in Brunei – each location presents a unique and deadly test which could kill Ed within hours. Completely exposed, he’s alone with nothing; no food, no water, not even a knife. Ed pits himself against nature and the elements and has 10 days to succeed against the odds – or succumb to everything Mother Nature has to throw at him.
MAROONED is produced for Discovery Channel by Tigress Productions where Dick Colthurst is Executive Producer and Matt Brandon is Series Producer. Meagan Davis is Producer for Discovery Channel.
